The announcement has sent a wave of curiosity and excitement among the fans. The fans were eagerly waiting for the return of the veteran wicket-keeper batsman.
Karthik wrote on his Twitter handle, “Made my Test debut in India against Australia…well done…it’s happening again!” Cricket fans have replied on this tweet. Many users have congratulated him.
Former India opener Aakash Chopra congratulated Dinesh Karthik and wished him all the best. However, cricket fans are confused by his tweet.

Let us tell you that Dinesh Karthik is not returning to the team. Dinesh Karthik will not play for Team India again, but he will make his domestic commentary debut in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. After a surprise return to the T20I squad after IPL 2022, Karthik turned commentary in 2021.
After being left out of the national team since the 2019 ODI World Cup, Karthik has signed up with Sky Sports for the 2021 season. He did commentary for the India-England series from his home.
